With providing the only available 100% open source MAPI backend, Kopano delivers not only the classic groupware features but extended WebRTC technologies, Owncloud APIs, CIFS connectors – all to deliver the user a unique monolithic communication experience. Kopano leverages the full LAMP stack to deliver enterprise groupware features and cutting edge technologies such as WebRTC to deliver the best experience to users dealing with their daily communication needs. With the use of MySQL/MariaDB as database engine in the backend, postfix as MTA, nginx or apache2 as webserver, Pacemaker for HA, the modular Kopano stack is set on-top on quite an amount of available open source software. And Kopano loves openSUSE, in fact: The packages that are provided are built on an OBS instance! This workshop shows how to install, configure and run a complete OSS communication stack based on openSUSE/SLES. This workshop will cover all components from MariaDB, nginx or apache up to an optional owncloud instance for files management - In the end you will be able to run a fully featured WebApp or DeskApp and use exciting and productive technologies such as WebRTC, WebDAV - all from one interface. Of course, you also want to be able to sync your mobiles and allow access for the non-geeks that are still jailed to Outlook, and therefore this is covered here as well. To give the admin the chance to run the environment safe and sane, we will cover the normal basic adminstration tasks and highlight the dynamic possibilities of the LDAP backend. In the end the workshop will show some performance optimizations and some best practices in running a larger environment. This session is meant to be an interactive workshop, so we encourage anyone just to have a Leap prepared to join in and ask questions on-the-go.
